Argiano Solengo, a great Super Tuscan, is the creation of the internationally acclaimed oenologist Giacomo Tachis, “father of Italian Wine”, who developed top-quality, long-lived wines like Sassicaia, Tignanello and Solaia and this Solengo, that took the wine world by storm.
Solengo 2015 is a modern, well-balanced and full-bodied wine. It is deep, dark purple in colour with a bouquet of ripe fruit, such as blackcurrants and blackberries, with a hint of toasted oak. It is smooth on the palate, with a great concentration of excellent fruit, nicely balanced with delicate, soft tannins. The structure and complexity in the mouth are outstanding, tempered by excellent tannic extracts. This high-profile blend has evident Mediterranean characteristics and a sunny nature. Its grace and delicacy mean that it can be drunk while young, yet it also has a remarkable ageing capacity.

97 points, James Suckling - "Fantastic aromas of flowers such as violets and roses with dark purple fruits and hints of stones, too. Full body with ultra-fine tannins and a long and linear finish. This is a return to the great Solengos of the mid-1990s. The best since 1997. Drinkable now but better in 2020."
